The IJAAPR is dedicated to advancing knowledge by publishing outstanding research in a variety of fields. It upholds the policy that each paper must pass the requirements of an independent, double-blind peer-reviewing system and editing for the publication to be considered of high scientific and academic quality. This international peer-reviewed open access journal was initiated as a result of the primary advocacy and intention of the founding editor-in-chief to acknowledge the research outputs of senior high school students as well as the research of public and private school teachers and undergraduate and graduate students in order to have a wider distribution of the articles that others may use for their own respective studies.
This is also anchored on the DepEd Order No. 66, s. 2007—Revised Guidelines on the Appointment and Promotion of Other Teaching, Related Teaching and Non-Teaching Positions, MEC Order No., 10 s. 1979—Implementing Rules and Regulations for the System of Career Progression for Public School Teachers, and the Republic Act No. 10912—An Act Mandating and Strengthening the Continuing Professional Development Program for All Regulated Professions, Creating Continuing Professional Development Council, and Appropriating Funds Therefor, and for Other Related Purposes, known as the “Continuing Professional Development Act of 2016”, in terms of innovation, research and development projects, and publication and authorship.
The IJAAPR welcomes the submission of quality research in any of the following academic domains:
(a) Academic Research:
- Basic Research,
- Educational Research,
- Action Research, and
- Classroom-based Research, and
(b) Practical Research:
- Academic Track such as ABM (Accountancy, Business and Management), HUMSS (Humanities and Social Sciences), STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), and GAS (General Academic Strand),
- Technical-Vocational-Livelihood (TVL) Track,
- Sports Track, and
- Arts and Design Track.
Practical Research academic domains are aligned with the K to 12 Program in the Philippines which covers Kindergarten and 12 years of basic education—including two years of Senior High School (SHS)—to provide sufficient time for mastery of concepts and skills, develop lifelong learners, and prepare graduates for tertiary education, middle-level skills development, employment, and entrepreneurship.
Senior High School is two years of specialized upper secondary education; students may choose a specialization based on aptitude, interests, and school capacity. The choice of career track will define the content of the subjects a student will take in Grades 11 and 12. SHS subjects fall under either the Core Curriculum or specific Tracks. Each student in Senior High School can choose among three tracks: Academic; Technical-Vocational-Livelihood; and Sports and Arts. The Academic track includes three strands: Business, Accountancy, Management (BAM); Humanities, Education, Social Sciences (HESS); and Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM).

Also, they will have the option of seeking additional reviews when needed. The authors will be advised when the Editors decide, further review is required.
The International Journal of Academic and Practical Research maintains the standards of doubled blind peer review while increasing the efficiency of the process. All research articles published in the International Journal of Academic and Practical Research undergo full peer review, key characteristics of which are listed below:
All manuscripts must be submitted through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The authors will be notified regarding the submission of their manuscript. The similarity index and scope of the study will be checked first by the Editor-in-Chief before proceeding with the review process; reviewed by at least two suitably qualified experts. If the submitted paper doesn’t meet the expected criteria of less than 20 percent (similarity index) and the scope of the study doesn’t match the requirements of the journal, it will be rejected, resubmitted, or declined for submission. The review process will take two weeks to give ample time to the reviewers to scrutinize the technical aspects of the study.
In general, the reviewers will be chosen by the Editor-in-Chief based on their field of specialization in research, and he will send an invitation letter to each, notifying them about the deadlines of the double peer review process. Two weeks will be given to each reviewer to complete their review task. The authors will be notified regarding their submission through email whether the manuscript is accepted, rejected, resubmitted, or declined based on the double peer review process, the verdict of the Editor, and also the final decision of the Editor-in-Chief.
Reviewers and editors are responsible for providing a constructive and prompt evaluation of submitted research papers based on the significance of their contribution and the rigors of analysis and presentation.
